Hawaii’s Big Waves

Leave a comment

Hawaii is seeing the biggest waves in 40 years.  We were at this exact spot on the North Shore of Oahu at the end of October.  Waimea Bay was calm and my son, Blair, jumped off the rocks that these people are videotaping from.  To give perspective Da Big Rock, as it is called, is about 75 feet high. Earlier this week the waves were up to 50 feet and the most courageous big wave riders on the planet came out for the Eddie Aikau competition which is only held if the waves are over 20 feet. The stars aligned. Surf’s up big time!
